This video of Fossil Springs in Arizona has a whole Journey to the Center of the Earth vibe. Diving off the rocky cliffs and swimming up and under this amazing geological wonder makes me really appreciate the natural processes of the earth.
Put together by the Traveling Bard, a graduate from the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism & Mass Communication at Arizona State University, and future archaeologist (so she just told me, how exciting!), you’ll look at Arizona from a entirely new perspective just by watching this.
If you’re not familiar with Fossil Springs Wilderness area in Arizona, you will be after this intimate journey. The wilderness area is located within the Coconino National Forest at the bottom of a steep canyon at the edge of the Colorado Plateau, just south of the Mogollon Rim. The water at Fossil Springs sustains one of the most diverse ecosystems in the state, with more than 30 species of trees set among native desert shrub. It also creates a haven for abundant wildlife.
There was too much city in the trees so I took a day-trip up to Fossil Springs and hiked among green forests and crystal-clear creeks. ~The Traveling Bard
